Fodor's Review

Expect long lines in summer at this indoor/outdoor dining spot serving up the freshest local fish (swordfish, sea bass, halibut, and tuna) and a wide range of creative seafood dishes (the Hawaiian-style poke salad with ahi tuna is a local favorite). Order at the counter, which doubles as a seafood market, and sit inside the airy dining room or outside on a grand patio. One of the few restaurants in Southern California with its own fishing boat, there's a good chance some line-caught local fish will be on the menu. Oysters are a great choice, and the fish tacos topped with the house-made hot sauce are not to be missed.
